This is a delightful, healthy, homemade play on the traditional spaghetti O’s. It is easy to make and modify, and of course, it’s Vegan! I encourage you to add or substitute ingredients to keep this recipe evolving. It is a great way to introduce different herbs and spices or sauces to your Littles.
2 cups Vegan elbow pasta (cooked)
1/3 cup of carrot puree
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup almond milk (without carrageenan)
Raising Vegan Tip- Turmeric is a mild spice which contains curcumin. Curcumin has been found to potentially prevent and stop cancer cells from progressing. The amounts used in cooking have been shown to be adequate in helping our bodies not only fight cancer but also inflammation.

Combine all ingredients to drained, warm pasta. Stir well mixing all ingredients and coating the pasta evenly.

There are many options for modifying this recipe. If your Little has a nut allergy feel free to use soy milk to substitute the almond milk. If your Little has a gluten allergy use chickpea pasta, rice pasta, etc in place of the wheat pasta.
